Scrapbook Classes

Ready to learn something new?

Maybe you're already a happy scrapper and want to try a new technique. Or maybe you've never scrapbooked before and it's time to archive your memories or create a specific project.

There will be scrapbooking classes at the Expo May 13 and 14.

To see the variety, click here.

The Expo will be held at the National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry.


Made in America

Made in America

There is a new movement happening, anything handmade and local are hot items these days. You can see this happening online at Etsy.com, your local craft shows during the holidays and your local farmers markets in spring.  Who wouldn’t want something grown or made/crafted with skilled hands from a neighbor?  I know I do! 

I know you’ve seen it.  But do you understand it? The new buzz phrase… “Made in America.”  Sounds great doesn’t it….Say out loud  “Made in America.”  

Ok.. so maybe I should have said “ Buy Local”…  Or what about “Handcrafted,” “Handmade,” and “Homemade.”  I have to ask the big question?  Do you buy local? Or just grab something from the big box stores?
